Wolfgang has kindly permitted me to take some photos of his 3/4" scale steam operated Duplex water pump today and upload them here.

Here they are.

I have a set of drawings for something similar in 1-1/2" scale from BvB.

nowhere as nicely done, but appears to be the same concept

Because of the compactness of this pump's design (I wanted it to fit neatly on my locomotive, ol' 2888) some of the passages in the cylinder blocks may be difficult to follow.

Please feel free to submit any queries you have to me via the email address given on the assembly drawing. Make sure that you clearly identify your query on the subject line because, if I do not recognize the name nor the subject of the email, I immediately erase it.

The pump makes a beautiful model even on a stand-alone basis. The pumping capacity is close to 1 liter per minute at 200 strokes per minute. w
